The city of Batumi in Georgia houses one of the most unique fuel stations in the world. It has a transparent faceted glass shell and within it there exists a fuel station, a McDonald’s outlet, recreational spaces and a reflective pool. The building uses both hard and soft landscaping to discriminate the pedestrian walkways from the vehicular driveways. It also isolates both visually as well as physically the operations of the fuel station with the restaurant. Neither party nor their customers can view the other’s internal working. The diners have a natural view of greenery and the sky. The building is an iconic structure and acts as a city landmark and reference point thanks to the captivating view of the water feature at night.
Here at Sigma College of Architecture, one of the Top Architectural Colleges in Tamil Nadu we help our students broaden their horizons by educating them on projects that cover more than one purpose for the structure.
